Question about Samsung NC10-14GW Notebook

Samsung N120 Netbook won't start Windows. stuck on black screen.

I have the Samsung N120 Netbook. Whenever I try to boot up computer after initial Samsung screen Windows won't start and screen remains at black screen. Occasionally I will get the following message: " \windows\system32\c_437.nls is missing or corrupted" and it instructs me to repair using windows setup disk. My netbook didn't come with this, it only came with the Samsung System Software Media disc which I cannot use b/c I do not have an external DVD drive. What can I do? I have tried to run Samsung Recovery Solution by pressing F4 during Samsung logo boot screen but after 15min all that comes up is generic wallpaper and mouse cursor but nothing else. What next?

See if you can download it from Microsoft. It seems to be related to the languge translators in Windows (NLS file).

    Not necessarily, if you can find the file ,you can use a flash drive. I'll look elsewhere for the file and I'll let you know if I find it. Hang in there.

I just purchased a brand new battery for my samsung NP-N120 netbook but the netbook doesnt recognize the battery why is that?

Try installing a new battery manager program from the following link:
System BIOS reads hardware and may need updating, look for updated BIOS software on the manufacturers website:
To check your BIOS version: start>control panel>system and security>system. In the left pane, at the bottom, choose; performance information and tools>advanced tools>view advanced system details in system information. Follow instructions carefully when updating BIOS.
If the update is not successful, you may render the machine useless and have to fit a new motherboard.

My Samsung N120 will not boot, whether in safe mode or normal mode. What can I do to fix this issue ?

If you have the recovary disc then just boot the pc with the disc and follow the instructions one by one your existing data will be erased and the pc will restore the factory defaults.
Start by pressing F4 when the BIOS "Samsung" screen is showing. This will MAY allow you to restore the original operating system from the recovery partition, if is there.
